    Howdy forum land!!

    Just wondering how easy it is to swap the running gear from a 71 bay into a 69 bay?

    Would it be a straight swap apart from rear axles?

    Has anyone done this and have some feedback/opinions?

    Anticipate your replies!!

    I actually understood the rear axles were the same apart from slightly different brake drums yet I know the front beams are larger and you will need to cut some body work to accomodate the large beam. The front brakes are booster assisted discs so you will need to change the whole brake circuit over for the best effect.

    Good luck.

    Cheers,
